Why concentration is so important in sports

This past weekend’s Syracuse upset over Virginia was thrilling. As a sports psychologist, what caught my eye during the game was a 10-second sequence during the first half. Take a look here. Syracuse freshman Tyler Lydon fell and his sneaker came off. His fellow freshman teammate Michael Gbinije picks up the shoe – while he’s dribbling – and tosses it off the court. Gbinije then passes to Lydon, who makes a clean 3-point shot… wearing only 1 sneaker. Amazing! – Sarah M. Whitman, MD, Philadelphia Philly.com
